Limpopo police have confirmed that an ANC ward councillor has been arrested and charged with last week's attack on foreign nationals in Polokwane that left one Zimbabwean dead and many others displaced.
A spokesperson says the 29-year-old woman councillor and five other suspects were arrested in a pre-dawn operation.
They will appear in the Seshego Magistrate's Court on Monday on charges of murder, public violence and arson.
The arrest has brought to seven the number of people arrested since violence erupted in the area on Monday.
